Grand Valley is a permit only campus. If you are coming to either of our campuses (Allendale or Pew Campus) during business hours, you will need a permit. Please check Parking Information for additional information and times, unless you choose to pay and park at meters or pay stations. Permits are available to guests of students at no cost at the following locations: Allendale Campus - Public Safety (Service Building - just south of the Alumni House) and Pew Campus - Pew Security (102 Eberhard Center). Temporary permits for students will cost $6.00 per day. Students are eligible for up to twenty daily permits per semester.

Faculty/Staff lots, designated spaces, meters and pay stations are enforced year round.
